How to prevent Guest access to Links

    I was messing around with BBcode and found an easy way to prevent guests from accessing :link::link: on threads.

    Usually, if you place url tags around an image, the image will be clickable, leading to the specified url.

    However, if the image is an attachment, and not from an image hosting service, it will be converted into a jpeg thumbnail for any guest viewing the thread. This procedure overwrites the specified url to a new one pointing to the full-size image. Upon clicking the image, you're redirected to an error saying "You must be logged in to do that".

    Pretty neat, huh?

    An example of this behavior is the first post of Sonic Boll's new thread. If you click the download button as a guest you're sent to the error screen.
